Special Risk Reinsurance is our business


November 2014

Did you know Sutton Reinsurance is one of the largest writers of industrial aid reinsurance in the US?

Industrial Aid Workers’ Compensation Benefits are primarily offered as a facultative reinsurance placement but treaty can also be arranged. Although it is an unusual term that describes Industrial Aid Reinsurance coverage, the coverage is essentially a protection for businesses that have company-owned, operated or leased aircraft and who wish to insure the employees who travel on these aircraft for business purposes. Sutton Reinsurance also offers protection for land-based travel exposures.

But, we also offer facultative reinsurance on Special Risks (Workers' Compensation benefit).

You may be aware that your client has exclusions in their catastrophe reinsurance treaty contract. These can limit the potential for your client to write business or worse leave them with unreinsured risk.

We offer a solution through the use of specific facultative reinsurance for Special Risks with respect to the following exposures:

  • Professional Sports Teams
  • Commercial Airlines
  • War
  • Underground Mining Risks
  • Blasting Operations
  • Demolition of Buildings
  • Fireworks, Fuses, or other explosive substances
  • Onshore and offshore oil drilling operations
  • Logging or Forestry operation
  • Other unusual risks
